The selection of one vendor was a conscious decision made by UF Procurement Services to pursue a managed print solution to reduce costs for campus. A formal public solicitation and competitive process resulted in Xerox/Zeno selection as the vendor for this initiative. By consolidating our spending with a single vendor, UF is taking advantage of economies of scale and efficiencies. Results of similar programs at other large universities have resulted in 25 to 30 percent cost avoidance.
